Spring makes me want to...

Gosh, isn't it springtime yet?? Will it ever come to the PNW?

I can smell it in the air, the smell of green, of new life bursting forth. Someone once told me that if you could actually hear all the plants growing and budding, it would be deafening...interesting to ponder, huh? I did see a lot of pollen dusting my car a couple of days ago, before we had more snow on Shabbat. *smirk*

Spring makes me want to...

buy a tree to plant in the yard

wash my car in the driveway

pack all my turtlenecks away, (but I never do! lol!)

get a pedicure in anticipation of wearing sandals

enjoy not feeling freezing-cold

paint somewhere in the house - no worries, this one passes quickly!

take a road trip (actually, every season makes me feel this way!)

roll the windows down in the car and turn the music up

buy an iced latte

smell what the air smells like when it's warmed by the sun

find my sunglasses

find a letterbox

plant a letterbox

eat outside

take pictures of flowers

enjoy the sound of the lawn mowers, both far and near

stand on my balcony after everyone is in bed for the night and listen to the crickets

look for butterflies

take the kids for a Slurpee

find a large body of water to walk by

skip school for the day and go hiking somewhere

explore someplace new

purge my closet and cut my hair - new beginnings!

plan a vacation

take a walk in the sunshine

Yeah...sunshine. Won't that be nice?

Careful what you wish for my friend. Miniles and I thought we would set out on a nice Spring day to do some letterboxing and amoung other things, her beautiful Mini Cooper didn't fare so well.

That bridge is in a seldom visited park just outside Raymond, WA...very cool place. I think I need to go plant some boxes there, actually. :-)

Our History with Saber Forge

UPDATE, April 19, 2012: we purchased new sabers from Ultra Saber LLC. To see a review, go HERE.

Saber Forge's Ambassador saber hilt
This post is to document and record the history of our experience with a company called Saber Forge. I would like this information to serve as information and perhaps a warning to all that are interested in purchasing a machined lightsaber, and/or are considering Saber Forge.

Saber Forge makes and sells lightsabers to be used as props with Star Wars costumes. When we started looking to purchase lightsabers that had the ability to light, Lisa posted for information on the Rebel Legion website. She was contacted by Mr. Phil Isherwood, owner of SaberForge.

It is most unfortunate that we have had problems with the sabers. I love the hilt, to be honest, and felt that we got what we paid for; however, the lingering problems and now the complete lack of customer service is most troubling.

Just Throwin' It Around

I have a friend who just got engaged to be married. As he was detailing the way he proposed to his beloved, something he said caught my attention. In the course of his adult life, dating and living, he had promised himself that he would only use the actual word love towards the one who he was going to marry. He further explained that it was his thought that people 'throw the word love around carelessly' and that it had a special meaning, one meaning. For him, it was only to be used in speaking to his soon-to-be wife.

I can see his point, especially when thinking about dating. I know it happens, all too often, that relationships proceed a little too quickly and emotions peak prompting hasty pronouncements of love and devotion only to be rescinded down the line, after the passion has worn off. Careful and introspective we must be when experiencing and building a new relationship that we don't bite off more than we can chew, so to speak. I agree with my engaged friend - w…


I am a maker and collecter of Artist Trading Cards. In my world, we call them "Letterboxer Trading Cards", because they are made by letterboxers and they must have a hand-carved stamp featured on the card. I have made hundreds, even thousands of these cards, and enjoy the hobby immensely (samples shown are a few of my cards). I also collect them from other artists and letterboxers, and have a collection numbering (also) in the thousands.

So, here's the confession: I HATE LOGGING THEM! Yes, that's right, I said 'hate'. I know, that's pretty strong, but it is the only way I can adequately describe the feeling of dread that comes over me the second after I enjoy receiving them in the mail. If I were a disciplined person, I would immediately make my way to the computer, sign into to my favorite letterboxing site and let these wonderful friends know how much I love their efforts, thus easing their minds that their hard work arrived safe and sound in my care.
